today is the 20th and we have officially begun the christmas festivities. school's out, the cold weather was back and we had the first holiday gathering. we left this morning for tim's aunt's house in oh. the day could be summed up in a few words: overeating, family, laughter, noise and fun. we hadn't seen everyone in a few months so it was nice to see them again. one of tim's cousins had a baby girl, karaline, a few months after drew was born. it was so cute to see how much she'd grown since we saw her in july. she and drew hit it off quick.
drew, as always, made himself the center of attention whenever possible. he is such a ham. lots of good pictures were taken, though i once again left my camera in the car....i'll have to post some once i get them emailed to me.
five days until christmas....this is one of my favorite times of the year!
